Twitter loves a good debate.
The “Friends” vs. “Seinfeld” debate has been raging for years now, online and off, thanks to both popular sitcoms thriving around the same time in the 90s and living on via reruns and Netflix. It was recently reignited by the Australian news site, but let’s be honest, there’s no real debate here. “Friends” is a frothy, fun rewatch, for sure, but “Seinfeld” was a game-changer. The real debate isn’t between six twenty-somethings living in improbably-sized apartments and four petty, narcissistic adults discussing minutiae and sabotaging relationships.
The real debate is between which “Seinfeld” episode is the best one.
That was the question posed by the show’s official Twitter account last week, in the form of a contest (not that kind, pervert!).

Needless to say, fans of what many consider one of the best TV shows of all time had a lot of opinions. The sheer variety of answers is a testament to how original and hilarious the show was, and may have you binge-watching it all over again. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
There’s the one with George’s infamous photoshoot:

The one with Fusilli Jerry:
We talking #TopSeinfeldEP? I’m clocking in with Fusilli Jerry. Estelle gets eye surgery, Kramer’s the Assman, Puddy steals Jerry’s move, Kramer steals Frank’s move, AND they find out who the Assman is. The 🐐. pic.twitter.com/riVCbmXSps

My brother’s favorite, in which George goes against his instincts:

The groundbreaking Contest episode:

I am particularly partial to The Race, in which Superman-fanatic Jerry relishes the chance to date a girl named Lois and then wins a rematch race against an old high-school foe, while the Superman theme plays.
But let’s be honest, give or take a mere handful, nearly every Seinfeld episode has a classic moment or two.
